in v.p. debates. >> i think senator dole has richly earned his reputation as a hatchet man tonight by implying and stating that world war ii and the korean war were democratic wars. this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: this is our western edition. one of the most powerful hurricanes in nearly a decade is battering haiti and the there is great concern that it could hit the united states later in the week. hurricane matthew, a category-4, is packing winds as high as 145 miles an hour. matthew is blamed for at least nine deaths. the eye of the storm is navigating the winward passage between haiti and cuba. the u.s. navy military prison at guantanamo bay is being battered. the u.s. has sent disaster teams to the region, including
5:32 pm
>> reporter: just after 7:00 a.m., hurricane matthew blasted into haiti's southwestern tip. punishing rains, and winds of 145 miles per hour uprooted trees and swept away the coastal town of la cayes. t resident george elie told us it was devastating: >> reporter: matthew could dumpl three feet of rain on this rural part of haiti, where many people live in shacks made of wood and concrete blocks. here, blocked roads and a collapsed bridge in the south make it hard to know the extent of the damage so far. this storm piles another calamity on haiti, the western hemisphere's poorest country. six years ago, a devastating earthquake killed more than 200,000 people.
5:33 pm
>> reporter: eastern cuba is bracing for its share of matthew's misery. at guantanamo bay, the u.s. navy ordered the evacuation of 700 spouses and children of service personnel. residents in santiago began feeling matthew's fury early this morning. "last night was terrible" this young woman says. "the waves were enormous.ough i thought they were going to enter the house." matthew has been churning at sea as a category four or five hurricane now for almost 100 hours. that's the longest since hurricane igor in 2010. and, scott, that has people living in its potential path on high alert, from cuba to the carolinas. >> pelley: mark strassmann thanks. a hurricane watch is up all along the atlantic coast of florida tonight. residents filled their gas
5:34 pm
told them to be ready to evacuate. in south carolina, governor nikki haley said she will order coastal residents to leave tomorrow. president obama canceled a florida campaign stop for hillary clinton. he'll go instead to fema headquarters to make sure they're ready. eric fisher is the chief meteorologist at our cbs station wbz in boston. eric, what's coming next. >> well, scott, this storm was the first category 4 hurricane to make landfall in haiti in 52y years. it lost just a little bit of intensity as it interacted with some of this land. however, anything it is losing it is expected to regain as it moves into the bahamas late tonight and into tomorrow.ur so 140-mile-per-hour winds right now. hurricane warnings extending up across the bahamas and here are the hurricane watch along east coast of florida, with tropical storm watches that extend down towards the keys. so as we look at the track, a lot of certainty over the next couple of days as it moves across the bahamas, still as a category four.es
5:35 pm
right along the coastline. and even though it might not make official landfall crossing the shore, it parallels the coast right on up to north carolina., so, scott, many communities from florida right on up the coast to carolina, all impacted by this storm. >> pelley: not to mention the storm surge. eric fisher, thanks very much. tonight, the candidates for vice president hold their one and only debate in farmville, virginia. in a cbs news poll, majorities of voters told us they were undecided about senator tim kaine of virginia anve mike pence of indiana, or just didn't know enough about them to offer an opinion. nancy cordes has a story on what to expect tonight. >> senator. how are you feeling? >> reporter: tonight's debate is on kaine's home turf, the state he served as governor. but both men are experienced debaters who have worked in government a combined 38 years. their chief job tonight-- talk up the boss. >> and this is a woman who is going to do a superb job. >> donald trump just gets it.
5:36 pm

5:37 pm
gay marriage and access to abortion.arde >> he is among the hardest stances again l.g.b.t. right, had to reverse himself on that after a lot of backlash from the business community. >> reporter: pence said he'sss looking forward to comparing his fiscal record in indiana with kaine's here in virginia, and you can also expect him to push kaine to explain what hillary clinton meant when she described half of all trump supporters as a "basket of deplorables." scott. >> pelley: nancy cordes at the site of the debate for us tonight. nancy, thank you. well, campaigning yesterday, bill clinton inadvertently handed ammunition to his wife's opponent. here's major garrett. >> can you imagine what he went through after making thatat statement? ( laughter )ug he went through hell. >> reporter: donald trump seized on comments from formerent president bill clinton critical of president obama's signature health care reform law. >> so you've got this crazysu
5:38 pm
health care, and then the people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. >> reporter: hillary clinton,r:h long a supporter of the affordable care act, offered this explanation late today. >> i've been saying, we've got to fix what's broken and keep what works. and that's exactly what we're going to do. >> reporter: health care and taxes could play a big role in tonight's debate. >> as a businessperson, i've legally used the tax laws to my benefit. >> reporter: indiana governor mike pence will have to deflect trump's 1995 business losses of nearly $916 million, a legal but outsized deduction that may have allowed him to avoid income taxes for years. tax expert allen cole: >> a net operating loss is a very normal tax provision. 1.2 million americans take it every year, but the amount taken by donald trump is very not
5:39 pm
and in fact, it may have represented about 2% of all net operating losses taken in 1995. >> reporter: today in pennsylvania, clinton pounced oy trump's losses. >> i mean, who loses money m running a casino, besides donald trump? >> reporter: trump now says the 1990-91 recession was to blame for his financial woes. >> if you remember the early '90s, other than, i would say 1928, there was nothing even close. >> reporter: compared to otherwn um trump's biggest problem was running up hundreds of millions of dollars in high-interest debt to acquire three atlantic city casinos. >> it's very hard to make an investment at 14% and get it to return enough to make it worth it. >> reporter: the running mates, pence and kaine, drive a fraction of the social media conversation trump and clinton do. scott, trump will try to remedy that tonight by live tweeting the debate. >> pelley: major garrett,
5:40 pm
also in farmville tonight is john dickerson, our cbs news political director, and, of course, the anchor of "face the nation."he john, this is probably the largest audience either man has ever appeared before. d what do they need to do tonight? >> reporter: well, the trump campaign has said mike pencece will be feisty. it will be interesting to see what that actually looks like because mike pence is kind of a placid guy. but he'll be taking the attack to hillary clinton. but he's also going to have to defend donald trump and also channel him in a way, and that trump is such a distinctive candidate. proof of that is donald trump has said he will live tweet the debate while it's going on. tim kaine will also be on the defensive. his job is to keep the conversation about donald trump, but, also, he has a chance to humanize hillary clinton, talk about her in a way, almost testify to her, and that's a message to democratic voters that he can deliver, that she has some trouble delivering herself. >> pelley: and, of course, the next presidential debate is this
5:41 pm
tonight's debate into the next presidential debate? >> reporter: in this campaign-- that's five days from now-- ini, this campaign, we've seen fiven days, you can have 50 different stories. if there is something tonight that lives on to that next debate, it will have to be something that gets to the central questions, those central questions that people have about the two candidates. anything that illuminates the questions about donald trump's judgment and temperament, or anything that happens tonight that encapsulates hillary cl if it doesn't go to those central questions, it will be on to st. louis and a whole new conversation. >> pelley: john dickerson. we'll be watching "face the nation" on sunday. thank you, john. cbs news live coverage of the debate begins at 9:00 eastern time tonight, 8:00 central, 6:00 in the west. the moderator will be my colleague elaine quijano, of our streaming news service cbsn. an american service member was killed by a roadside bomb in

5:43 pm
